Summary
"This collection explores how humor and entertainment were used internationally as strategies to help survive the chaos of the Great War by the soldiers in combat as well as civilians. The contributors in this volume analyze how wartime escapism expressed through recreational activities, the media or artistic creation served as tools of diversion, triggering national pride and hope, among the countries of the Entente or the Alliance powers. These mechanisms of survival also provided a way to unite the general public behind the war effort as well as to strengthen the bonds between the home and the battlefront"--
